Mixed Results with the Volvo S80
By Ronald Jay on
Vehicle
2003 Volvo S80 2.9 4dr Sedan (2.9L 6cyl 4A)
Review
Overall, a good car but with some notable problems. The car failed to start when almost brand new and the dealer asked if I had another set of Volvo keys on the same keychain! It appears that their keys contain a microchip that has caused starting problems if together(this was not the problem in my case and they couldn't diagnose the cause). The dealer never mentioned this problem when I bought the car. Windshield wipers are weak and the car is not nearly as good as my old 1997 Saab 9000 in the snow. I have had difficulty making it up some very low inclines with very little snow on the ground. Comfortable seating in front and back.
Favorite Features
Acceleration with the non-turbo is excellent. The Turbo for city driving is actually too powerful.
Suggested Improvements
Headlights weak and the foglights are worse. Dealer uses strong-arm tactics to get you to give them excellent ratings (i.e. "10's") in customer surveys after buying and service experiences. Dealer reputation in service is poor.
